Research overview

I'm a cognitive psychologist specialising in speech and language. I research how language interacts with our perception, actions and cognition, for example how language comprehension is related to our sensory experiences and actions, and how we integrate multimodal cues when we communicate with others. I currently work as a Senior Research Associate on an ERC grant investigating how language and sensorimotor experience interact during complex cognitive processes such as semantic categorisation and memory for actions. My particular interests include how we understand abstract words, multisensory speech perception and inner speech/language. I use a range of methods from experimental psychology, psycholinguistics and cognitive neuroscience.
